Better late than never ...

Dangerous Women is an anthology put together by author George R. R. Martin of "Game of Thrones" fame and included in this book is a "short" story by Diana Gabaldon. What with all the frenzy regarding the TV Show and the change in release date for "Written in My Hearts Own Blood" the fact that we are getting a brand new story in less than two weeks seems to have fallen by the wayside!
For those of you who don't know the story is simply called "Virgins" and in it we see a nineteen year old Jamie Fraser and his best bud Ian Murray in the French army. I couldn't tell you who the dangerous woman from the story is as I'm proud to say I've read none of the spoilers!
In addition to the Diana Gabaldon story the book also includes stories from author such as Brandon Sanderson, Joe Abercrombie, Sherilynn Kenyon, Lawrence Block, Carrie Vaughn, S. M. Stirling, Sharon Kay Penman, and many others.

Starz have released this photograph of the delectable actor Sam Heughan in full Jamie costume! The first thing that springs to my mind is that he looks scruffy! I'm actually really pleased with that because it shows that we are going to be seeing something which is realistic and not a cookie cutter show but a nitty gritty show which reflects the books. The second thing I noticed is that he looked really annoyed with someone and I certainly wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that expression. I'm wondering at what point in the story this scene takes place as he seems to be at Lallybroch in the fields.
